Our parishes are in desperate need of Sacristans. Sacristans assist and work under the direction of the pastor and deacon to prepare for Mass and help maintain the Sanctuary. Duties include setting the Lectionary and Sacramentary for Mass; setting out enough hosts and wine for the consecration; setting out clean hand towels, purificators and corporals; ensuring that all the liturgical ministers have arrived for Mass.
A Sacristan should have knowledge of the Liturgical Calendar and the proper process for cleaning ciboria, and chalices. Additionally, it is helpful for a Sacristan to have understanding of special celebrations in the Church. Sacristans generally arrive at Mass 30 minutes prior to Mass to set up and stay 30 minutes afterward to see clean-up has been completed.
These ministries are opened to anyone (Male or Female) who has been confirmed and attend Mass regularly or weekly at one of our three parishes. Sacristan training will be provided for those interested.
If you are interested in becoming a sacristan, please contact Deacon Wendt or Lori Wendt; 626-2611 ext. 3 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
